The big wigs sure do know how to make these beers look appealing. Something just pulls you in with the labeling and the marketing. I remember liking this one so let's see how she pans out this time around.

Appearance - in bottle, but a beautiful looking one.

Smell - Dark caramel malts, sweet toasted grains. Metallic tomato. Light fruits and floral notes. Some processed corn but kept in check. Smells like Budweiser but with no skunk. I like this nose. A lot.

Taste - Smooth and tasty. A hint, and I mean a hint, of bock bitterness which steps out of the way almost immediately leaving a clean and crisp finish. Identifiers would include tomato, metallic baked bread, washed out grains. Towards the end it develops a metallic after taste. The taste really is pretty good, and definitely refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Carbonated, which is not surprising for a big labeled beer. Under the carbonation is a creamy wash that gives the impression of a full-bodied beer. Finishes crisp and clean.

Overall - The last few beers I have rated I haven't been very impressed with. They were less than satisfactory. This is a nice change of pace and a welcome addition to my beer cache. I thoroughly enjoyed this Amber Bock and I will buy it again.
